The “somehow” is actually through concert sales, but yes: Lady Gaga’s abbreviated Born This Way tour raked in $80 million between June 2012 and June 2013, putting her at the top of Forbes’ “Celebrities Under 30” list. Justin Bieber is No 2. with $58 million; Taylor Swift (last year’s top earner) drops to No. 3 with $55 million. In big-deal actress news: Jennifer Lawrence made $26 million (which puts the Oscar winner at No. 8). Fan club brunch is on her.
